I added chocolate chips and baked this in a bundt pan. I took it to work and everybody loved it. It had great flavor and consistency.

Great tasting banana bread! Delicious and moist. I made it in a bundt pan rather than a cast iron skillet and it worked out perfectly. I didn't have any cardamon so I added extra cinnamon and I used walnut for the nuts. Lovely, thanks for posting.
